[Hey! Mickey, give five!]
[Oh, sorry! I've only got four!]
After I made part 1. It seems many friends here are making cartoon or comic characters also , they asked me if I can make a tutorial for the hand etc. So here you are!
It's a simple tutorial of how to make a cartoon hand. It is pretty much self explain of step by step in the picture comparison. I tried not to put too many words here, so you may think more about what's the best method for you. Although it looks simple but you do need the proportional conception of human's hand and fingers in mind. And also compare with the character that you are making. Make a good calculation for the size, think it over through, get it right at once.
I like to make hand a separated piece to sculpt it in my hand instead of sculpt it on the figure. It moves back and forth if attached on the figure. Why not make it in your hand, so when it's ready, put it on the figure, you'll only need a minor adjustment. You may bake it first before you put it on figurine. The picture shown with a shape knife meant when you are going to bend the fingers. Make a shape "V" cut in the joint but don't cut it off! Pull it up a little, bend it and fix a bit for the gaps after you bend it. Sometimes, you might want to make the fingers longer if you want to cut and bend them.
I make it in small scale so you may use the same skill to make larger hands. Hope this may help you a little. Please advise if you have any suggestion or question. Thank you for watching my friends! Enjoy!!
